Description Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2007-08-29 01:49:54 UTC
Since some months now I notice such many troublesome warnings on the SAMBA build. I especially note here the warnings from the PIDL compiler and the lex.* files.
Comment 1 Andrew Bartlett 2007-08-30 00:52:42 UTC
The lex warnings are a pain, but as these files are generated by an external tool, they are hard to fix.  The PIDL warnings are a note to us to restructure a large amount of our IDL for greater standards compliance.  

It is a big task, and perhaps shouldn't be warned about generally.  However, this is up to jelmer. 
Comment 2 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2007-09-24 14:40:56 UTC
Is there a plan to start doing this?
Comment 3 Jelmer Vernooij 2008-01-07 13:02:58 UTC
Yes, I plan on working on the pidl stuff at some point.
Comment 4 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2008-03-04 11:02:14 UTC
Okay, status update:
- The PIDL warnings still persist
- The nasty lex messages seem to be delightfully gone
- The build of the python bindings generate lots of warnings. Isn't there a way to suppress it?
Comment 5 Jelmer Vernooij 2008-03-04 11:12:35 UTC
We shouldn't just suppress those warnings, we should fix the actual things they're warning about. 
Comment 6 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2008-03-04 11:39:58 UTC
For example:
Are the PIDL warnings so difficult to fix?

Yes, they require some IDL refactoring and matching appropriate testing against Windows.
Comment 8 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2010-02-13 07:10:07 UTC
Since this is not really a bug and I think our IDLs evolve from time to time, more and more warnings will be gone.

Therefore I close this bug with "WORKS FOR ME".
